Cabinet Depth Problem

Postby Travis Black » Thu, Jul 07 2016, 8:52PM

I'm working with upper cabinets, which in this case are 12" deep. That measurement should be from the back of the cabinet to the front of the face frame. I dado my 1/2" back's into each side which makes everything flush on the back. Then the sides are dado'd into the face frame. My cabinet dimension in the editor are Cabinet Width 12", Cabinet Height 36", and Cabinet Depth 12". When I run my cutlist, the sides only measure out 11 1/8" which is 3/8" to short. The 3/8" happens to be the depth of my full dado. I want my sides to measure out at 11 5/8" so, than when you add in the last 3/8" on a 3/4" face frame you would end up with a cabinet that is 12" deep.

Any suggestions on how to make this work? Thanks in advance for the help.

Hi. Travis. In construction settings.in the back tab. Try selecting side flush for the left and right sides.
Yes! Oh Yes! I Think We Are Going to make It!

Scott, checked the settings, and both are marked side flush.

Kerry, not sure how to post the cabinet for your viewing.

I did manage to get around it, by changing the Cabinet Depth to 12.375, but that does not seem correct?

Travis,

When you post a reply, at the bottom of the forum screen there is a tab that reads Attachments.
Click that tab then click Add Files
Your path to your Cabinet folder should be similar to this

C:\Users\Public\Documents\Thermwood\eCabinet Systems\cabinets

Inside the cabinets folder will be the folders where you save cabinets.
Go to that folder then find your "cabinet name".hsf file
add that file as the attachment.

It will upload that file so we can look at it.

Travis in construction settings in the right/left sides tabs. under "Construction" > Front. Choose the appropriate construction method. Full dado, blind dado etc. Then set your dado depth in construction parameters in those same tabs.

Kerry, the file is attached.

Carmen, both Left & Right are set like they should, but still not the correct depth.

Travis,

In Construction Settings:
Change the 3/8" Back inset on the Back, the left end and the right end to Zero
When you set the left and right construction to full dado with sides flush the software does the inset

If you don't want the back flush with the ends you can leave the Back inset but you must remove the left and right end insets.

Kerry, that fixed the problem. Thanks for the help with this. Frustrating to say the least.
